Well, we do have five contests, not one, and the paper doll contest that is still open right now doesn’t require much in the way of special skills. Why not give it a try?

Or how about letting the moderators know what you’d like to participate in in the future? Or what kinds of prizes you’d like to win?

The companies that donated prizes this year wanted to give us something extravagant and special since it is our tenth anniversary. We certainly weren’t going to turn down the opportunity for our membership to win such amazing gifts, but we also wanted the companies to feel like their prizes merited some effort.

The fourth and final contest for the 10th Anniversary festivities has now begun! The Wonderful Surprise!

Contestants must photograph their ball jointed doll and turn it into a jointed paper doll!

The winner will receive a nude whiteskin Doll Chateau 26cm Faust, generously donated by Denver Doll Emporium

Second and third place entries will receive an uncut and unlaminated set of four paper dolls by Enchanted Doll, generously donated by Marina Bychkova.

This contest is different than the other contests we have had so far this year. The DoA moderators will vote on the winning entries, so you may post your entry directly into the contest thread. You may also share your entry and process with whomever you like on any social platform.

We hope you enjoy this extra bit of fun!

Den of Angels has some new goodies just in time for our tenth anniversary! Both designs are the work of the multi-talented Armeleia, and they are available on a plethora of fun things.

Need some nice new pajamas to wear at Dollism? Need some Big Girl Panties to wear while you’re browsing the forum? Need a field bag for taking your tinys on an expedition? Or how about a mug to sip from while you wax poetic about the early days of the hobby?

Check out the complete supply over on cafepress

Its like you knew I would have no choice but to add them to my vast collection of pajamas…

Do I need Den of Angels panties?

Those are nice knickers. I could do with them…

Our butts could match.

As much as I love all of these…. why didn’t they make an actual doll carrier?!

We’re limited to the items that cafepress stocks. Doll bags aren’t exactly a common household item. ^__^;

We’ve heard back from the Sisters and they will be donating a Peewit! :D

The Great Triathlon is well underway and contestants are currently working on their third challenge.

We had over 125 entries the the first challenge in which contestants were asked to make their doll a pair of wings. You can see all of the entries and the voting results here.

Challenge number two was to construct a display niche or vitrine for the same doll. This year’s contestants are very determined; there are still over 100 entries! You can see all of the amazing entries and cast your votes for your favorite four here until Saturday, August 23rd.

In challenge number three, contestants are hand-crafting books about their dolls, creating an animated GIF of the entire tome, and presenting an artistic shot of their winged doll interacting with the book while on display in the niche. We’ll have those entries posted for voting next week!

The Den of Angels 10th Anniversary celebration continues with our Photography Contest! 

This years theme is “Recreating the Past.” Contestants must use their dolls to replicate a photo of their choice. Any photo taken before the year 2000 may be used, whether it’s a Berenice Abbott or one your mother’s Christmas snapshots from 1989.

Four prizes will be awarded to the entries that earn the most votes. The winner gets first choice from the following prizes:

Any currently available FreedomTeller ensemble in the winner’s choice of size, generously donated by FreedomTeller.

A custom face-up, generously donated by SDink.

A custom pair of urethane eyes, generously donated by DollBakery.

An apothecary set of acids and poisons, generously donated by Atrium Hoshino.

Deadline for entries is Saturday, August 23rd, 11:59pm EDT

I wonder, would a piece of painted art be okay? And, do we have to submit it on the DoA site, or is here okay?

Painted art does not meet the guidelines for this contest ( we’ve done that contest in the past ).
All entries must be submitted on Den of Angels using the entry form posted in the contest rules. Entries are posted anonymously and DoA members vote for their favorites, so posting anything offsite that could link you to a particular entry will disqualify you from the contest.
